5.0 out of 5 stars 2013 Steven Wilson remaster is awesome!, November 19, 2013
I see that the reviews here on Amazon are mixed, but I really like the 2013 Steven Wilson remaster. If you want to deconstruct this album and discern the contributions made by each individual musician, the Wilson remaster is the one to have. However, a real fan of this album should not buy this one and throw away their earlier versions. The mixes are that different. As they used to say: "Collect them all!"

I purchased the 2-disk version with stereo CD and DVD-A and had no technical issues.

Two million listens barely satisfy. See my review of this remaster at [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, February 7, 2009
I bought this at Toca do Vinicius in Ipanema (Rio) last week - what better place to buy it? Very nice, relaxing. Lots of the classics. Even if you have these songs as vocals, the instrumental versions are nice. No big surprises or show-off pieces. Nice for company or girlfriends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not to be uncharitable..., February 9, 2005
This review is from: Lowflow (Audio CD)
This CD is "OK" ...but if you want to hear Thomas Fehlmann because you like the Orb, buy his album "Goodfridge Flowing nine zero nine eight." If you like "Otticker" (Autechre) then buy Lowflow (or buy Autechre's music!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply another racist monologue, September 14, 2004
Where does the 'hard right' find writers like Malkin and how do they become annointed as 'opinion leaders?'

This is a horrid book with a disgusting premise but it should be read by anyone and everyone not convinced that the Right has a narrow agenda which is destructive to all we hold dear as Americans.

Only the bright light of day and public scrutiny will do. Malkin is not a 'conservative.' She is a tool for something truly ugly and Americans need to know what is slowly taking over their country. She and her type make Tolkien's 'Wormtongue' look like a nice guy that you'd have out for beers on a Saturday night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Next time you hear 'them' screaming about 'Liberal Media'..., May 23, 2004
The corporate owners of the media, their executives and their business partners (commercial and political advertisers) are in collusion to make sure that the deck is stacked against regular citizens who are raised to believe in fairness and in favor of those in collusion. Their tools include the Federal Communications Commission and their agenda is the perpetuation of commerce, not an informed citizenry.
This book explains the early traditions of American media, how the media has been coopted and corrupted by the Right and by powerful commercial interests, and how this situation has become self-perpetuating and institutionalized by the FCC.
Don't be persuaded that this book is a left wing screed. Although this issue is a major reason why we have a Bush administration, it is not a personal indictment. Rather, it is an indictment of the system that is, and a case for why it should be (and once was) very different.
Robert McChesney tries hard to be an honest broker of information about the Media and he largely succeeds. In the lengthy (chapter-length) appendix, he is meticulous with his sources and invites further reading on all sides of the issue. While you're reading McChesney, read John Nichols (and particularly the book they wrote together, called "Our Media, Not Theirs").
The next time you hear people ranting about the liberal media, ask them to question who influenced them to think that way and point them to this book. Consider: why is it that the more citizens question the consolidation and bias of the media, the more the issue is fogged up by figures in the media? The answers are simple; McChesney helps the reader understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad but true, January 10, 2004
While we're on the subject of "objective writing" vs "liberal screeds," intellectually-curious people would also enjoy "Rogue Nation?" by Clyde Prestowitz. This author was an economic advisor for the Reagan administration and currently involved in world economic policy. Despite the provocative title, Prestowitz' book is well thought out, well researched and written unemotionally. The substance of his arguments (to paraphrase an earlier reviewer of this Philips book) are also little different from those of Michael Moore et al. Perhaps those who are quick to discredit these works should consider that there might be some factual basis to them. Prestowitz, by the way, is advising Howard Dean.
Credit is due to the few real conservatives (Prestowitz, Phillips, David Brock) have awakened to realize that the current cadre of "conservative Republicans" are the true radicals. I long for the day when the word "reform" again has a positive meaning. Too often now, the word is a smoke screen for yet another destructive radical-right initiative that's bad for our country and its people.
Geez, even John Le Carre, ever one to avoid politics in his novels, can no longer remain silent about the madness that has hijacked the United States and an activist minority of its people! To those who hope that people will wake up to the disparity between the Bush class and the mainstream of our country; the Phillips book deserves reading.
There is a pattern to these Amazon reader reviews - some say this book is inspired & insightful; others say it is trash. To those who would say that it's "liberal conspiratory trash," has it occurred to you that perhaps there is some truth to the reporting? Unfortunately, the information sources that so many "conservatives" consider to be authoritative are opinion-based and not fact-based. Yet they are positioned as fact and that's enough for many people. It is sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs any other book on consulting?, July 2, 2001
My wife read this book to me on a road trip just after I was laid off from a job, and by the time we got home, I felt charged up and ready to get started. The tips on personal networking, proposals, negotiation and formalizing the deal were especially helpful to me.
This book does not come with rose-colored glasses. If you're motivated but a little uncertain, this book gives the advice and reassurance you need to get started. If you're willing to put in the effort and be totally honest with yourself, it's no-nonsense all the way.
I would never have known that the author was not in my field. It's one of the best 'professional improvement' books I've seen.
